About this Webinar:

Plant-based dietary patterns are becoming increasingly popular for people with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). Additionally, diets that include more plants can delay the progression of CKD and improve micronutrient imbalances, bone health, glucose management, and bowel regularity in people with CKD.

This webinar provides health practitioners with a comprehensive understanding of the benefits of plant-based diets, research to support their use, and actionable advice for implementing plant-based eating for patients with non-dialysis-dependent CKD.

Following this presentation, participants should be able to:

  1. List at least three benefits of plant-based eating patterns for people with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).
  2. Incorporate plant-based diets into therapy for patients with CKD to improve potassium and phosphorus management.
  3. Communicate changes to the nutrition guidelines for the management of CKD
